Have you read the book "Never Eat Alone"? It's a great read and I remember picking it up at a Vegas Airport Bookstore and not putting it down until I got to the last page.

Today, I had lunch with a girlfriend. She is super smart, entrepeneurial, full of life and just a wonderful person.

I met her in Houston at a business conference and got to know her over a week because she was good friends with a friend of mine. Actually, our mutual friend insisted that we meet and catch up. Which we did and have never looked back.

Her name is Michelle Carden and many people may remember her when she gained profile and respect for building a very big company in Australia and selling it off for millions.

She sent me a text this morning to see if I was available for lunch. I hate doing lunch during the work week because it takes me away from my beloved computer, but she said she had some feedback on my IM for me, so it really was in my best interests to go.

5 Minutes with Michelle is worth a fortune. If you don't become so inspired that you are literally jumping up and down on your chair, you are certainly getting insight into her brilliance as a business woman and as a human being.

She is dynamite. Her energy is completely contagious and she has so many business ideas up her sleeve, that I am surprised how she can possibly walk around.

What I learnt today was simple; A lunch date with someone can change your outcomes.

She gave me some advice that superceded that of everyone who has been speaking to me about my Information Memorandum to date. Now, I have taken that advice, raced back to the office and I am straight back to work.

Thanks Michelle. You rock!

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
    find this matter to be actually something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for
    your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

    Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing
    many months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to stop hackers?

    You really make it seem so easy together with your presentation however I
    to find this topic to be actually something which
    I think I might never understand. It kind of feels too complicated and extremely extensive for me.
    I'm having a look ahead to your next submit, I'll attempt to get the cling
    of it!
